    Default Oswego County Pistol Permit

    Hi,
    My wife and I am getting ready to apply for pistol permits. We live in Oswego county. Has anyone here gotten one from Oswego County yet? Do they issue unrestricted?
    Thanks!

    Ok, we went last night and picked up the packets. Here is what is required:

    1. $20 for the packet at the county clerk's office.

    2. Applications, Family court affidavit, Carry Concealed Affadavit, Employee Character reference and Individual Character references(4). They have to be signed and notarized.

    3. 4 references must live in Oswego county, have known you for more than a year and cannot be related to you or each other.

    4. 3 identical front view photos.

    5. Send in Mental hygiene forms.

    6. Get fingerprinted and turn packet in.

    7. Handgun safety course.

    8. Wait.

    So how does having things noterized work? Does the Notary have to see the references sign the paper?

    A Notary acts as the eyes of the court. They witness signatures and then affix the Notary seal.

    Good luck!

    I didn't have the notary witness my references sign. Didn't cause me any issues. The notary is there to swear you in and verify your identity. I don't think the references enter into that, though you might want to verify with your county just be sure.

    What's the "Carry Concealed Affidavit" they gave you?

    Hi,
    The concealed carry affidavit allows you to show a need to carry. It is basically a lined form where you tell the judge why you need to carry.

    Ok, just verified about the references and notary-the references have to sign in front of a notary. I don't think this will be a problem because I belong to a rather large church, so someone will probably be a notary. That is also where all our references will come from.

    What exactly is an "Employee Character reference?"

    The employee character reference is a questionnaire they send to your employer asking for a reference. Based on the questions I am getting, I assume some of this stuff is not in other countys packets?

    In Broome I had to list my supervisor on one of the extra forms included with the application but they never actually contacted him.

    I also had to list my "closest neighbor", which I asked about because I didn't want my neighbors knowing that I was applying for a pistol license. They told me I could list the "closest person that you know", so I put down a co-worker who lives about a mile away. They never contacted her either to the best of my knowledge.

    Not sure why they wanted those bits of information if they weren't going to contact the people. Every county has it's own quirks I guess.

    I'm a notary. Your references do not need to sign in front of the notary. They will be sent forms after you turn in your paperwork that will be in need of notarization. When you take your forms in front of the notary, the notary will confirm that the forms have been completed, they don't care if the information is correct or not, only that the forms are complete. When you show proof of your identity and sign the forms in front of the notary, you are swearing that the information is true to the best of your knowledge. Notary seals are optional, I don't use one because of the cost involved. I just use a rubber stamp with my commission number, name, county, etc. on it. The notary will then sign the forms which provides proof that you did indeed present yourself in front of the notary, provided ID, and signed the paperwork. Don't sign anything until you are physically in front of the notary. Hope this helps.

    Ok, but each form that the references are supposed to fill out has a place for a notary to sign at the bottom. Does that change things?

    If the Oswego Co. is like Oneida Co., you have three identical forms for you to fill out and have your four references simply sign and then you take these to the agency there that handles fingerprinting. These are the ones you need to have notarized. After you are fingerprinted, each of your references will be mailed a questionnaire to fill out, these need to signed by them in front of the notary. Hope I'm not confusing you here.
